I've noticed a couple threads stating the lower 4 bolts on OEM ball joints have sheared off. There may be more but these two come to mind.
This got me to thinking that maybe the new bolts were of lower quality and needed to be upgraded to avoid this situation from happening. I'm no bolt expert by any means so I took an old bolt out of my part out truck and a new OEM bolt to a local shop that sells only nuts and bolts to get an idea of differences of materials.
The owner of the business said he believes that both the old and new OEM bolt are of low quality but he can't be certain since there are no bolt grade markings on the head of the bolts.
He also printed me off a torque spec for an 8. The trick is that the lines on the bolt head are the markings. There are 4 lines which means it is a 9T class bolt which I think is grade 6. IIRC the metric grade 8. Last edited by mmml4; at PM. Reason: head up the ass causing misinformation, sorry.

There is a key in the front section of the manual. Replace those weak yoto bolts with some ARP 12 pointers. They are suposed to be rated atpsi. Plus they have some type of guarantee on them.

And with aftermarkets, you are definitely losing some behind the scenes engineering, probably alot of behind the scenes engineering.Remember Me? Site Navigation. I've got the FSM's for both runners and runners. That's a pretty big difference for what I'm assuming are the same suspension set ups.
I'm leaning toward the ft-lbs since its a closer FSM to my particular model year, but was wondering if anyone here has any insight.
Thanks, Mike. Originally Posted by MandAtaco. Torqued to ftlbs. Once I saw the size of the bolts, I realized they would be just fine at that rating. Thanks for the response. Long time lurker and first post! I would love to know what you are to do for a ? I just completed a CV axle and upper ball joint replacement.
Torqued the lower two control arm bolts to because the manual I have for a indicates that Now I see other manuals saw ? What's correct for a ?
Either should be fine. If you are really worried about it, go with the Won't hurt em. And it'll take you 20 p min tops. BB code is On. Smilies are On.

Last edited by JWaldz; at PM. JWaldz - This does have the same info, and even more. The other one is the MAIN stuff, such as the stuff that people work on most of the time; ie.
This one has ALL of the torque specs. If you want to replace links, feel free. However, if keeping the smaller one and adding this one is possible, I would think that would a better option. That's just me though. Very handy reference. Good job. I have a paper '99 FSM that has all this stuff.
If you like, I can scan the relevant pages and send them to you. Maybe you can PM me an e-mail address. Or if you have some other way to do it? Doc No problem. You might list the original thread in the header paragraph of your top post here. That way if someone wants the quick and dirty version they can get to it. I did also link both in the "Master Directory ofDiscussion in ' 1st Gen.

Which brand??? Post Reply. Hey All! Having a problem here torquing the 4 bolts at the lower ball joint to the steering knuckle.
The FSM calls for 59ft lbs in at least 3 different places in the manual. I've tried 2 different torque wrenches but they both are identical in torque values in everything I've tested so far.
So the question is: Are these the correct torquing values? It seems a lot for a 10mm diameter bolt. FowlTacoNov 4, Well, if it were inch pounds, that would be roughly 5ft lbs. I was thinking maybe 30lbs max. Don't know what the problem is, but a couple things to note: When you never seize bolts, you are actually applying a lot more torque then if the thread were dry.
Are the bolts new? Rusted near the head? What grade hardware?
